Editorial Reviews

"Thomas, a young black child, and his grandfather are alone one stormy night when the lights go off. Thomas says he is not afraid but when he asks for a story, Grandfather tells about a time during his own boyhood, when he was very scared indeed. With striking artwork and words as mesmerizing as the art, the story about the nature of fear and human nature is wonderful." Starred review) (ALA Booklist)
